What you will learn

Those who complete the entire program should be able to:

  • Explain the science behind bone and cartilage issues including composition, injury and repair
  • Describe bio mechanics and the effects on biological systems (joint mechanics and stability)
  • Provide an advanced understanding for experienced clinicians of Joint Arthroplasty, Chondral Procedures, Arthroscopy and Reconstruction
  • Emphasise the healing / stress tolerances post-operatively that underpins rehabilitation time frames
